When Ashley and Jon asked me to photograph their wedding on the Amalfi coast, I was truly honored and immediately on board. I couldn’t wait to see the beauty that this coast of Italy had to offer for wedding photography. As a photographer who has done weddings since 2005, (soon approaching the end of TWO decades of wedding shooting) I’ve seen it all… winter weddings in white wonderlands, summer weddings on a pristine beach, fall weddings in the Pennsylvania mountains that make you think you’ve walked into a rainbow… but I was enamored at the thought of a bride standing on the cliff of the Amalfi coast. That image was in my mind for a full year leading up to this wedding. I have photographed destination weddings in the past, locations such as Florida, Alaska, South Carolina, Montreal, and more.. but I knew the bright blue water and sunny skies of southern Italy were going to soon be some of my best work yet.
Jon and Ashley’s day was absolutely perfect by all standards. The location was surreal on a villa overlooking the water, with a view of Mt Vesuvius behind them as they said their vows. The weather was a perfect 80 degree day with sunny skies. There couldn’t have been a more perfect day even if you ordered it off a menu from the Gods. Speaking of menu… after their ceremony and portraits on a cliff, their four course meal was just divine, followed by a firework display cake cutting and dancing the night away!
Congrats to Ashley and Jon on a beautiful beginning to what is going to be a beautiful marriage… All my best to you! Thank you for making me a part of journey with you!
